Repair Of Abdominal Wall Defects With Bovine Pericardium. Limpert JN, Desai AR, Kumpf AL, Fallucco MA, Aridge DL.

Veritas Collagen Matrix displayed high strength and minimal infection rate allowing its use in the reconstruction of complex abdominal wall defects where prosthetic mesh had failed or was contraindicated.

The Right Material in a Field of Dermal Products VERITAS Stands Apart*

Characteristics of Bovine Pericardium Used in VERITAS

  • Pericardium is fascia
  • Composed of multidirectional dense regular connective tissue
  • Consistent and reliable material harvest1

Characteristics of Dermal Products

  • Composed of loosely organized collagen
  • Variable tissue consistency from donor to donor in human dermis
  • Pre-stretching of material required at implant

VERITAS Resists Post-Operative Bulging2

  • At 6 months in a rat model VERITAS shows defect contraction while Alloderm stretches2
  • 2x2 cm defects were created and repaired with 3x3 cm biologics lateral to midline
Alloderm, Veritas

VERITAS Minimizes Tissue Attachment3

  • VERITAS displays minimal tissue attachment characteristics and smaller adhesion surface area than other biologic meshes in a pre-clinical study.2,3 VERITAS is one of the few biologics with an indication allowing placement of the device against the viscera.4
